    listening to loads of listening exercises - its all practise.
    if u get bored of that u can always listen to Spanish radio and understand 5% of what they're saying-I think it also helps, get u in the Spanish mindset

    I went from a D in my mock( cheated) to a high A in real thing and a* overall for German.

    What I did is do past papers, listening and reading, translate every single passage/word and there's this website that does correct pronunciations for stuff and I basically found that online.

    When I learnt vocabulary made sure I learnt phonetically too. They repeat words a lot at gcse so past paper method was good

    WAS IN THE EXACT SAME POSITION AS YOU!!! All year round I was barely getting a C in the listening papers and I didn’t know how to practise my listening skills until 2 weeks before the actual exam and Idk if it’ll work for everyone but for me, I’d do loads of past papers 1 at a time and after I mark it, I’ll listen with the transcript (the text that’ll come with the paper) and then a week later I’d repeat the same papers as I knew for listening exams, I’d most likely forget the questions! And I came out with an A!!! (Just 1 mark off an A*) DD Tho I’d suggest practising throughout the year instead of being like me that left it last min and you’d most likely be hitting the top grades!

    And also learn the vocabulary that is tailored to your exam board!! I suggest learning the words from memrise!! There are so many words but remembering becomes easier and easier as you review the words more
